What We Do

The Fashion Institute Midwest (FIM) is committed to nurturing aspiring designer talent and supporting the Midwest fashion ecosystem. FIM’s mission is to provide regional fashion designers with mentoring, training, resources and industry network opportunities to fulfill their creative potential in the fashion industry.

The Fashion Institute Midwest develops the whole designer and the fashion ecosystem through four project pillars: Creative Inspiration, Skill Development, Resource Development and Business Incubation.

Designers learn all facets of the fashion industry from technical classes such as fabric and pattern draping, business classes (formation and marketing) and technology workshops.
